50 Shades of Chicken Cookbook Spoofs 50 Shades of Grey
If you were thinking that the 50 Shades of Grey shenanigans would die down well before the release of its tentative 2014 movie, you may have been wrong- 50 shades of wrong.
The best-selling mommy porn series by E.L. James continues to spark Grey-theme products such as eyeshadow, beer koozies, and baby onsies featuring phrases like "9 Months Ago, My Mommy Read 50 Shades of Grey."
Of course it should come as no surprise that the erotic literary sensation has also worked its way into the kitchen. There are already Grey-themed cake toppers being sold on Etsy, Grey-themed cooking classes being held in Westlake, California, and come this fall, a 50 Shades of Chicken cookbook.
Written by F.L. Fowler, a satirical pseudonym, 50 Shades of Chicken features 50 tantalizing recipes to help you "dominate dinner," including: Dripping Thighs, Chicken with a Lardon, Bacon-Bound Wings, and Mustard-Spanked Chicken.
Taking the parody one step further, the book also appears to provide a vague storyline, dispersing dialogue among the recipes as it follows the adventures of Miss Chicken, a "young free-range...[who] finds herself at the mercy of a dominating man, in this case, a wealthy, sexy, and very hungry chef."
Available for preorder on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, 50 Shades of Chicken is scheduled for release on November 13 for as low as $12.22. It's the perfect gag gift for the holidays and a nice follow up to those who already own 50 Shades of Bacon.
